As the largest ice-free region in Greenland, there is a lot of potential for multi-day hiking within Destination Arctic Circle.
We have plans to open up further trails in the near future, but currently there are two well-marked multi-day treks – Greenland’s famous Arctic Circle Trail and its extension to the Russell Glacier.
Ice Ridge Trail
A spectacular 2-day hike along the ridge above the Ice Road from the edge of the Ice Sheet at Russell Glacier to Kangerlussuaq.
Other multi-day hikes in Greenland
Destination Arctic Circle is not the only part of Greenland that has marked hiking trails of course.
If you would like to explore other parts of Greenland on foot, have a look at Visit Greenland’s Ultimate Greenland Hiking Guide.
Please be aware that hiking in different parts of Greenland offers distinct challenges, and not all trails are as well marked or documented as ours.
Also, although the Arctic Circle Region is considered polar bear free (they are rarely found here), North Greenland, East Greenland and parts of South Greenland are not. In these areas, we recommend hiring a guide or joining a group tour to ensure your safety.
